Hello. .
Well since the doctor has already examined you and also have been evaluated and then have suggested you for surgery then it must be required as the first mide of treatment is rest....yiu can postpone the surgery but then it will simply exaggerate your symptoms...you an undergo regular physiotherapy...thank you
